Jonathan Fields

the struggle is real

This month, I'm taking a look in the rearview mirror at 2018 and a peek ahead at the road ahead in 2019. I invite you to hop in and take some time to reflect on and forecast on your own life alongside me! 2 steps forward, 1 step back We're closing in on the two-year anniversary of the 2017 Women's March on Washington, and I've been considering what has changed—and what hasn't—for me as a woman i...

SOUL food | Loving

This is the final post in the SOUL food series—you can find the first one at SOUL food | Seasonal, the second at SOUL food | Organic, and the third at SOUL food | Unique. Relationships are one of the most important primary foods in our lives, and we rarely (if ever) think about our relationship with ourselves as one of them—and so it is perhaps the one we rarely tend to. I'm a podcast junkie...

A few of my favorite things | Books

Last week's post on the podcasts I recommend generated quite a few replies, one of the more common being, "But what if I don't listen to podcasts?" I don't find much time to read except for 10–15 minutes in the morning over a cup of coffee before anyone else is up—and I still find that I can make it through quite a few books if I am really intentional about treating that reading time as a non-n...

Vacation ends soon—I'm slipping in another quickie post before I run out to enjoy the end of it! If you've been following me for a while, you know that I'm a big fan of podcasts. I listen to them when I'm driving, when I'm walking, when I'm cleaning house, and over the past few years, I've settled on a few favorites, which I thought I'd share with you.

If you haven't listened yet, check it out for a weekly dose of inspiration. After commenting on words from our own field tha...

Granola | GOOD 70s hippie food

Back in the 90s when I was working for a caterer in Boulder, CO, one of my coworkers also hailed from Vermont. The two of us would often talk about "back home." Jordan, a born story-teller, had spent some time following the Grateful Dead, and he would entertain the rest of the staff at lunch with his stories. One of Jordan's favorite routines was an impression of an old-timer from Vermont compl...

When the power goes out: on habit + ritual

I once asked a native Michigander why, while rain and snow storms are common in Michigan and even tornadoes occasionally pass through, the city where we live—Ann Arbor—seems to largely go unscathed. I expected an explanation about geographical features or wind patterns, but instead he said, "Have you ever looked at a map of the city? We live in the middle of a big heart!" And indeed, if you til...

“Harry was Voldemort, and Voldemort was Harry”

I’ll be honest: my candidate was out of the running after the primaries, which may be one reason that I’ve been feeling a bit detached from the aftermath of the election. Not apathetic, but detached. I did vote my conscience, and I did not “cast a protest vote” nor “throw my vote away.” You will read this sentence based on your own reality, which will give you your own interpretation of it. And...
